QC in MPs' expenses claim questioned

James Goudie, QC, of 11 KBW, acted for the Information Commissioner in the High Court case relating to the expenses claims of 14 prominent past and present MPs, including Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron.

The High Court ruled in favour of the commissioner and the details have now been disclosed to the campaigner and journalists who requested them under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
